Miranda Castro :: ABOUT ME ::

I am a British-trained professional homeopath who has been in practice since 1983 and writing and teaching about homeopathy since 1988.

I have a special love of homeopathy, having used it my whole life. I came to classical homeopathy when my son was a year old and suffering from whooping cough. Thankfully, after several false (homeopathic) starts, we found a classical homeopath who was able to cure Daniel by not simply focusing on his physical symptoms alone. As a result, Daniel's general health improved and despite the seriousness of his complaint, he didn't suffer any long term effects or vulnerabilities.

Miranda Castro biting her nailsI am a prolific writer with a reputation for being able to discuss both complex and sensitive issues in an approachable, interesting and informative style. My first book "The Complete Homeopathy Handbook" (Macmillan/St. Martin's Press) has sold over 250,000 copies and is reknowned for being the first and only book to bring classical homeopathy to the home prescriber. My second book "Homeopathy for Mother and Baby" (Macmillan/St. Martin's Press) is much loved for its wealth of practical advice and sweet comfort as well as its homeopathic guidance. My third book "A Homeopathic Guide to Stress" describes the great big landscape of stress (including physical and environmental stresses) with homeopathic solutions. It is a uncommonly helpful book for everyone packed with homeopathic wisdom.

I am a regular contributor to both professional homeopathic journals and popular publications dealing with complementary health matters and homeopathy.

I have been teaching and talking about homeopathy to the lay public and interested health care professionals since 1988, including groups of midwives, nurses, counselors and doctors.

I have a background in acupuncture, iridology, healing, supervision and humanistic psychotherapy. I developed a program of supervision specifically to meet the emotional and more practical needs of the professional homeopath. This has been incorporated into the curriculum of several homeopathic teaching establishments in the UK and has formed a cornerstone for my homeopathy teaching.

Miranda Castro in discussionOn the basis of my writing and teaching I am frequently invited to teach at schools and present papers at conferences, both in the UK and the USA. I am a provocative and entertaining speaker with a specialty on ethics, practice management and practitioner development.

In 1994 I moved from the beautiful but cold, wet and windy Pennines (in the North of England) to Santa Fe, New Mexico where I finished writing my book on Stress and Homeopathy ... in the sun!

I decided to stay in the US and in 1995 I moved to Seattle, Washington where I taught homeopathy at Bastyr Naturopathic University for 5 years and had a private practice. During that time I became actively involved with the North American Society of Homeopaths - helping to grow the organization from a handful of homeopaths in 1996 to many hundreds of practitioner and students members in 2003, and serving as Executive Director (1996-1998) and President (1998-2000).

From 2000 until 2002 I worked with Kent Homeopathic Associates, creators of MacRepertory and ReferenceWorks ... bringing my sales, marketing and teaching skills to the world's premier homeopathic software company.

From 2002 until 2006 I was active in the Florida Health Freedom movement and, as well as teaching and presenting, I consulted on and wrote for Homeopathy Today (the magazine of the National Center for Homeopathy).

At the end of 2007 I moved to Gainesville (Florida) where I am practicing and writing and taking the summers off to play with my grandkids in Bristol - in the UK!
